The Miss Helotes Pageant crowned its first Queen in 1967. Young ladies from the Helotes area compete for a spot on the court and a chance to represent Helotes at the surrounding towns’ festivals and public appearances.

Duchess – Finley Allen
Miss Citizenship – Sarah Madla

The first few years the production was staged at Floore’s Country Store. It moved to Helotes Elementary School then to Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. As it grew and as scholarships were added to the winner’s packages, larger areas were needed to stage the event. The pageant moved to John Marshall High School, Taft High School, the University of Texas at San Antonio, O’Connor High School, and now at Pedrott’s Ranch.
Pageant & Prizes
Several dedicated local volunteers have worked hard to bring this Pageant to the point that participation is a coveted life experience for young ladies from 9th grade through 11th grade. The addition of scholarships and other prize packages have added to its success. The Pageant is known for having an elegant, professional presentation and outshines many other local pageants. This experience has been the catalyst for many accomplished young ladies who are successful in their lives and careers. The current Miss Helotes and court received a prize and gift package worth $15,500. Miss Helotes 2022 will receive the official crown, 14-Karat white gold, diamond, ring from Rialto Jewelry in addition to a scholarship.
